On the subject of transparency, it was heartwarming to hear Lord David Trimble, former First Minister of Northern Ireland and Nobel Prize Winner, speaking at tonight's annual dinner of the Zionist Federation of the UK.
He spoke of his service on the Turkel Commision of Enquiry into the Gaza flotilla incident last year.
He told of his surprise at seeing the Israeli government supplying verbatim transcripts of high level meetings which took place in the Israeli cabinet and defence establishment before and after the indident.
Nothing had been hidden or redacted as one would normally expect to see in other governments' private minutes.
